im no expert but from looking at it, i'm not a fan of how both rocks are the same size and pointing in the same direction. maybe make a mountain using all the rocks and put one big one pointing up and one pointing to the side and the other rocks around them? i dunno. nice looking rocks though!

Definitely dig the rocks into the substrate a little. Try not to make it all look so uniform.

Instead of the rock sitting on the bottom, let the rock come out at an angle from the corner of the tank. That way the rock looks like its protruding from the rear and not just laid there. Just burry it in there...just a little =).

Left rocks too spread out imo and that corner one is too close to the tank. Also that rock closest to the center on the left the line is too vertical. Again its how you look at it and what you like.
